(rasping) Once I joked about the possibility of us getting together, but she told me she valued our friendship too much and loved me "like a sister." Things got awkward and we drifted apart, though I would read her Facebook status updates every day. (panting) Eventually the two of them invited me to their wedding, but during their first dance I slipped out the back door, went home, and opened a bottle of Jack Daniel's.
